2008 Chevrolet Cobalt LS 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
I purchased this car to drive to work and school. Bought it brand new. Previously owned a Chevy Lumina for many years. I think the best indicator in do you really like your car is, Would you buy it again? My answer to this one is an absolute NO. I disliked this car so much that after two months of owning and 3000 miles later, I traded it in on a used Subaru. The Cobalt is just another version of the Yugo. At least that's how I felt when driving. Everything in the Cobalt looks and feels cheap, like it wasn't very well thought out. My new line is "I would rather drive a used Subaru than a brand new Cobalt."
I was able to get rid of it fairly easily. The dealerships love to sell these to unsuspecting buyers who think they are getting a great car.
Stop selling this car, Steering and handling is way below the standard of where it should be for this model year. Scrap the whole idea of the Colbalt and try a new design. This car is not even up to the standard of the Cavalier it replaced.
